National Picnic Week – Product Guide

3 min readProduct Reviews

Have you heard of National Picnic Week? It’s a week to celebrate togetherness and the great outdoors by heading out with friends and family. Make sure you have everything you need to celebrate this great event with our comprehensive guide to our extensive picnic range.


Cool boxes/bags

A picnic is only as good as the food served up. So keep your food and drink fresh and cool with our selection of cool boxes and bags. If it's just your cans that need cooling then the Coleman 9 Can Cooler is perfect. With enough space to carry nine cans it has an adjustable shoulder strap for carrying comfort and multiple compartments to also store water bottles, snacks and more.


Lunch boxes

A separate storage area for just your food is ideal to ensure they don’t get squashed by heavy bottles and ice packs. For those enjoying a picnic with little children, or if your kid is heading off with school, scouts or friends then why not make things a bit more interesting for them and put their food in brightly coloured and fun lunchboxes. We have great products from Aladdin Bento for boys and girls. The double wall foam insulation will keep their food hot or cool for up to 5 hours and an internal divider keeps different foods separate.



The wind can be either your friend or your enemy. Don't let the wind ruin your picnic! Protect yourselves from strong gusts by having a look at what Outwell have to offer with a quick and easy to pitch windscreen. Designed with ground spikes – this bad boy isn’t going anywhere.



Enjoy your picnic in comfort with a soft picnic rug. Nobody wants to end up with wet trousers after a long day sitting on dewy grass so grab one with a waterproof base and be assured you won’t receive any awkward grass stains.


Tables & Chairs

If sitting on the floor isn't your idea of a perfect picnic then take a look at one of our fantastic picnic tables for a more sophisticated experience. Eurohike offer a great range of foldable table’s ideal for families and smaller picnic parties. Whether you want a stool, chair or bench, they’ve got you covered.

Compact Chair

If you would rather have your own comfy throne than sit on the floor then add a compact chair to your picnic necessities. The stripy chair from Eurohike is ideal. It has a sturdy steel frame, a drinks holder in the arm rest and folds up into an included carry bag. Perfect!


Tableware & Cutlery

Finger food is great, but sometimes your fingers just aren’t enough. At Millets we have a huge selection of outdoor tableware and cutlery to make your picnicking experience as homely as possible. You can go as basic or as fancy you want from plastic to steel, from tumblers to wine glasses, and from sporks to a full cutlery set.

Keep your beverage of choice hot in one of our fantastic flasks. In three different sizes, 500ml, 1L and 1.5L, Eurohike offer a great value flask with vacuum insulation to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. With a stainless steel construction it can withstand the bumps and tumbles expected when venturing outdoors. The insulated cap can also be used as a handy cup.
